Hi Michelle,


While the answers to this question will vary widely, one rule of thumb that gets shared a lot is this: for every credit hour that you take, plan to spend 3 hours per week studying and completing homework. Aside from major exams or weeks with lots of projects due, this should give you plenty of time to complete daily work, and it can be helpful to schedule out your study time. If you're taking 12 hours of classes a week, try to build 36 hours of study time into your week. If you can't make quite that much time every week, schedule as much study time as you can to make sure that you're not overloading yourself, and be sure to give yourself some extra time around those major project deadlines.


Best,

Plan to spend 2-3 hours studying for every hour of lecture. Attend your professor's office hours and any TA review sessions.

Bonnie’s Answer

The standard is you should expect to spend two hours out of class for every hour you spend in class. This, of course, can vary from class to class. However, like anything, the more you put into it the more you get out of it. I would also add that showing up to class is very important, because you can never get all of the information that the instructor shares in "real time" by getting notes from someone else. Good luck!
